Strange Google Play and Youtube problems -LG Optimus VSupport

    I'm having a couple weird app problems on my stock/unrooted Optimus v.

    On Google Play I can browse the entire store on 3G or wifi but can only download apps and app updates via 3G-when trying to downloads via wifi the animated "downloading" bar appears but nothing else happens no matter how long I wait.

    For Youtube the app will not recognize connection to either wifi or 3G.

    There are no wifi or 3G problems with any other apps or downloads and the problem occurs regardless of signal strength.

    Here's what I've tried so far with no luck:
    1. Uninstalled updates and re-updated Play and Youtube
    2. Factory reset.
    3. Signed out and back into Google Talk(at Google supports suggestion).
    4. Verified that my router has the latest firmware.
    5. Tried wifi on with 3G turned off and vice versa.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This might be worth a try. Its solved a lot of these phone acting comfused type problems for me. Pull the battery, with thabattery out hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Reinstall the battery and reboot. It's worth a shot!

    The following should explain why this method (pulling the battery & holding the power button for 30 seconds) works sometimes to fix various issues.

    It could be a problem with the permissions of the apps, the SD card, or a rouge app? What modifications/apps have you installed? Can you give me a list of all the running apps and try a different SD card?

    Didn't want to derail the threads (didn't know if me leaving you a PM was a good idea either).
    I couldn't help but notice the upgrade in responsibility. Congrats!!!

    PM me so I can let you know of the changes needed in the ATR Guide (still green on the inside, can't be on the outside because of health).
